CPT Now Accepting Proposals for Big Box 2015

Big Box is the centerpiece of our 14-15 season. Big Box has played a significant role in the formation and growth of three local theatres and works from Big Box have gone on to full production at CPT and beyond.

Big Box offers artists or groups the opportunity to produce original works of theatre, dance, performance art, music or genre defying performances. Big Box is about what the artist wants to focus on. We open the doors and let the artist experiment, charting their own course, making their own decisions and taking their own risks.

Big Box gives artists the opportunity to self-produce their new work. CPT offers organizational guidance through strict deadlines and clear deliverables, and provides resources of space, equipment, front-of-house, basic technical and marketing support. Artists are fully responsible for producing the work.

Big Box is not about huge production values. This is for workshopping new pieces beyond a staged reading but short of a fully produced work. It's about core artistry, not fancy finishes. The artist shouldn't get too caught up in elaborate plans because they don't have much time in the space. But don't confuse minimalism and resourcefulness with lack of style and quality.
